Power Rankings – Sexy Six – Week 2

JSGFFL Sexy Six Power Rankings – Week 2


1. The Shockers (2-0), Point Differential – 54, (Prev. 1)

The Shockers absolutely dominated the Savages 59-16 in Week 2. The Shockers have been the best team in the JSGFFL over the past few seasons, and haven’t lost a regular season game in over 2 years. The Shockers offense is averaging the most yards per game at 424.5, the most plays per game at 39, and the most yards per play at 10.88. They have done all this without having a turnover. On defense, they have the second most interceptions through the first 2 weeks with 6 interceptions, including 1 that was returned for a TD by Shannon Hill. QB Joe Giuffre has thrown for 849 yards and 14 TDs without throwing an interception so far this season. WRs Devon Snead (10 rec. 246 yards, 3 TDs) and Charlie Barbiere (11 rec. 204 yards, 3 TDs) rank 3rd and 5th in the WR leaderboards right now. The Shockers will have a tough opponent as they take on The Rabid Squirrels (1-1) in Week 3.


2. Warewolves (3-0), Point Differential – 52, (Prev. 4)

The Warewolves were able to edge out the Savages in a 30-24 victory in Week 2 to extend their record to 3-0. Shane Capone had another big game as he caught 4 passes for 102 yards and 2 TDs. He now has 16 catches for 368 yards and 8 TDs on the season, which ranks him first on the leaderboard. Angelini has the 2nd most TDs and passing yards in the league with 15 TDs and 878 passing yards. The Wolves offense is 2nd in the league in yards per play with 10.09, though they are the slowest moving offense in the league and the only team averaging under 30 plays per game. The Warewolves will play in the game of the week in Week 3 against the Woodchucks (2-1).


3. Woodchucks (2-1), Point Differential – 9, (Prev. 3)

The Woodchucks handled business against the Rabid Squirrels in Week 2 as they won the Game of the Week 30-18. The Zit threw for 5 TDs in this game, and now has 14 on the Fall season. He has been uncharacteristically pick happy so far this year as he now has the 2nd most in the league with 5 picks thrown. The Zit is happy to have Billy Belford back at WR. Billy ranks 2 nd to Shane Capone on the JSGFFL leaderboards with 18 catches for 282 yards and 5 TDs.

The Commissioner must really hate the Woodchucks as the schedule has not been kind to them through the first few weeks. The Woodchucks continue their tough schedule with the Game of the Week against the Warewolves (3-0) in Week 3.


4. Rabid Squirrels (1-1), Point Differential – 8, (Prev. 2)

The Rabid Squirrels fell to the Woodchucks 18-30 in Week 2. They couldn’t get much going as The Woodchucks held Collins to only 200 yards through the air. Even after a down week, the Squirrels still have the 4th ranked offense in the league in both yards per game (291.5) and yards per play (9.4). Newcomer to the team and league, Andre Snead is leading the team in receiving, he has 10 catches for 190 yards and 3 TDs. The Squirrels are going to need to get some big performances on Saturday when they take on the Shockers (2-0). It is still early in the season, but the Squirrels do not want to fall to 1-2.


5. Clam Slammers (2-0), Point Differential – 38, (Prev. 5)

The Clam Slammers won their second game in a row led by their defense. In a real barn burner, Clam beat the Assassins 15-6. Frank Ritacco had another 2 interceptions, while Kenny Colicchio had 1. They both lead the league in picks with Frank having 4, and Kenny having 3. Clam Slammer held the Assassins to under 200 yards of offense, which is the 2nd straight week they’ve accomplished this feat. Matt McClain was their leading receiver and had a nice game with 5 catches for 83 yards and a TD. The Clam Slammers hope their defense can keep leading this team, because their offense ranks 9th in the league in yards per game with 220. The Clam Slammers will take on the Kekembas (0-3) in Week 3 as they look to stay undefeated.


6. Strangers with Candy (2-1), Point Differential – 7, (Prev. Unranked)

Week 2 was a redemption game for Mike Torrell as he threw for 354 yards and 6 TDs on the way to a 46-12 victory over the Kekembas. Cam Blackwell (6 rec. 107 yards, 1 TD), Pat Jensen (7 rec. 98 yards, 1 TD), Mike D’Addario (7 rec. 57 yards, 1 TD), and Kyle Spatz (5 rec. 43 yards, 3 TDs) all played well for Strangers in Week 2. Strangers have a good team that can make some noise in this league if they are able to limit their turnovers on offense. Candy will hope their momentum will carry over to Week 3 as they Gladiators (1-2).

Players of the Week – Week 2 Edition

Players of the Week – Week 2

 


QB

Joe Giuffre – Shockers

Giuffre was at it again in Week 2 as he threw for 390 yards and 7 TDs in the 59-16 win over the Savages. Joe has now thrown for 849 yards, 14 TDs and 0 interceptions through his first 2 games this season. Giuffre is leading the league in QB Rating, and has the most yards thrown per game with 424.5. The Shockers (2-0) have a tough matchup this upcoming week against the Rabid Squirrels (1-1).

QB Runner Up

Mike Torrell – Strangers with Candy

Mike Torrell bounced back and had a strong Week 2 after throwing 6 interceptions in 2 games in Week 1. Torrell would complete 27-38 passes for 354 yards, 6 TDs, and 1 interception in the 46-12 blowout over the Kekembas. Pat Jensen and Cam Blackwell had big games at WR for Torrell and Strangers with Candy, Pat had 7 catches for 98 yards and a TD, and Cam had 6 catches 107 yards and a TD. Strangers with Candy will look to improve on their 2-1 record as they take on the Gladiators (1-2) in Week 3.


WR

Devon Snead – Shockers

The Shockers won big again in Week 2 as they blew out the Savages 59-16. Snead was the top receiver on the day as he hauled in 5 catches for 160 yards and 3 TDs. It was Snead’s first 3 TDs of the year, and he now has 10 catches for 246 yards. He is 3 rd in the league in yards, and tied for 4 th in the league in both receptions and TDs, although it is worth noting that a few receivers ahead of him have played an extra game. The Rabid Squirrels will have their hands full slowing down Snead and the high powered offense of the Shockers in Week 3.

WR Runner Up

Paul Wickwire – Gladiators

The Gladiators played 2 games in Week 2 and lost their first against the Woodchucks, and then beat the Grizzlies in their second game. Paul makes this list because of the first game he had in the 38-30 losing effort against the Woodchucks. In that game, Wickwire dominated as he had 9 catches for 130 yards and a TD. Total for the day, Paul would end up with 14 catches for 179 yards and 2 TDs, and would even complete 4 of 4 passes for 58 yards and a TD. Wickwire is ranked 4 th on the WR leaderboard so far this season with 18 catches for 212 yards and 2 TDs. The Gladiators (1-2) will take on Strangers with Candy (1-2) in Week 3.


Def

Frank Ritacco – Clam Slammers

The Clam Slammers defense dominated for the second straight week as they held the Assassins to 176 yards of total offense and only 6 points. Frank Ritacco had 2 interceptions in this game and almost returned 1 for a TD if it wasn’t called back because of an illegal block in the back. Frank now has 4 interceptions and 1 defensive TD this season, both are good for the league lead.

Def Runner Up

Jose Ortiz – Woodchucks

The JSGFFL’s biggest hot head is the Def runner up this week, though I am sure he will let me know that he deserved the top spot. The Woodchucks played 2 games in Week 2 and won both of them. Jose had 2 sacks in the first game and an interception in the second game. The Woodchucks continue their tough schedule to start the season as they take on the Warewolves in the Game of the Week for the Week 3.

Power Rankings – Sexy Six – Week 1

Sexy Six – Week 1


1. Shockers (1-0), PD – 11

The Shockers are sitting on top the power rankings after knocking off the defending champion Woodchucks 46-35 in Week 1. Joe Giuffre had a big game and took home the QB of the week honors as he threw for 459 yards and 7 TDs. The Shockers had huge games by the WR quartet of Charlie Barbiere (7 rec. 149 yards, 2 TDs), Anthony Carlo (4 rec. 83 yards, 1 TD), Devon Snead (5 rec. 86 yards), and Anthony Spanola (6 rec. 84 yards, 3 TDs). Steve Soletto would record 2 sacks on defense, while Devon Snead and Bryan Soletto each had an interception. The Shockers have been the team to beat in the JSGFFL for the past few seasons and currently still hold that title as they have knocked off the reigning champs in a rematch of the championship game. The Shockers have the 9 am game in Week 2 against the Savages (0-1), who are a new addition to the league this fall.


2. Rabid Squirrels (1-0), PD – 20

The Rabid Squirrels looked really good in Week 1, and were seriously considered for the number 1 spot in the rankings this week. The Squirrels downright dominated the Savages as they won 42-22. Sean Collins had a huge game where he completed 25 of 28 passes for 383 yards, 6 TDs, and 1 interception. The Squirrels added a few new players and they had an immediate impact. Andre Snead had 6 catches for 131 yards and 2 TDs. Fellow newcomer Shelton Burnett had 2 TD catches himself, and looks like he will quickly become Collins’ favorite red zone target. Mike Lawrence also had a huge game for the Squirrels with 4 catches for 141 yards and a TD. The Rabid Squirrels have a tough matchup in Week 2 in the 10 o’clock game against the Woodchucks (0-1) in the Game of the Week.


3. Woodchucks (0-1), PD – (-11)

The defending champions came up a little short in Week 1 against the Shockers in the championship rematch. The Zit threw for 422 yards, 5 TDs and 2 interceptions. Billy Belford returned to the Woodchucks and was brilliant as he caught 8 passes for 172 yards and 3 TDs. 2 of the D’Addario’s had nice games as well. Anthony had 4 catches for 74 yards, and Chris had 3 receptions for 68 yards. The Woodchucks may have the toughest schedule to start the season as they try to defend their championship. They take on the Rabid Squirrels (1-0) in Week 2 in the Game of the Week, and follow that tough matchup up with another one in the Warewolves (2-0) in Week 3.


4. Warewolves (2-0), PD – 46

The Warewolves had a double header and won both their games. The first game was 50-14 against the Kekambas, and the second game was 38-28 win against the Gladiators. The Commissioner threw for 594 yards, 11 TDs and 2 interceptions combined for the day. Shane Capone went off in both the games and combined to have 12 catches for 266 yards and 6 TDs. Mike Kalucki was solid on the day as he had 9 catches for 101 yards, and Rob Gudgeon chipped in 2 TDs for the Wolves. On defense, Capone and Angelini each had a pick 6, while Kalucki had a sack and an interception himself. The Wolves take on the Savages (0-1) in Week 2 at 11:00.


5. Clam Slammers (1-0), PD – 29

The Clam Slammers took the summer season off and came back with a splash as they blew out Strangers -with Candy 47-18. The Clam Slammers defense really shined as they would have 5 interceptions and 3 defensive TDs. Frank Ritacco and Kenny Colicchio each had 2 picks and 1 TD, and Sean Cahalane had the other pick 6 for the Slammers. Brian Lee threw 4 TDs for the Clam Slammers, his top target was Kenny Colicchio who had 3 catches for 71 yards and a TD. Clam Slammers will be playing in the 1:00 game against the Assassins (0-1) in Week 2.


6. Grizzlies (1-0), PD – 20

The Grizzlies came out strong in Week 1 as they routed the Kekambas 26-6. The Grizzlies appear to have another new QB this season as Alfred Kobe threw for 213 yards and 4 TDs. Bobby Forcella was Kobe’s top target and caught 8 passes for 69 yards and 2 TDs. The Grizzlies have found themselves just on the outside of the playoffs the past couple seasons and look like they have a good shot to finally break through to a playoff appearance this fall. The Grizzlies will be playing the Gladiators (0-1) in Week 2 at 2.

Players of the Week – Week 1 Edition

Players of the Week – Week 1


QB

Joe Giuffre – Shockers

The Shockers were looking for revenge in the championship rematch game from the summer season against the Woodchucks in Week 1, and they would get their revenge as they won 46-35. The Guffslinger would complete 27 of 44 passes for 459 yards and 7 TDs. Charlie Barbiere was his top receiver as he hauled in 7 catches for 149 yards and 2 TDs. The Shockers are always a force in the JSGFFL, but last year showed they are not unbeatable. They will take on the Savages in Week 2.

QB Runner Up

Sean Collins

The Rabid Squirrels beat the newly formed Savages team in Week 1 42-22. Not only does Sean have a phenomenal first name, but he also had a phenomenal first game last week as he completed 25 of 28 passes for 383 yards, 6 TDs and 1 interception. Collins has a few new targets at his disposal this season, and they sure made an impact in their first game with the Squirrels. WR Andre Snead had 6 catches for 131 yards and 2 TDs, and Shelton Burnett had 2 TDs himself. The Rabid Squirrels are looking dangerous this season but have a big test in Week 2 as they take on the defending champion Woodchucks who will be hungry to not drop to 0-2 on the season.


WR

Shane Capone – Warewolves

Shane Capowned once again this week as he played 2 games and would end the day with 12 catches for 266 yards and 6 TDs. The Warewolves beat both Kekembas and the Gladiators by double digits. Shane had a solid first game, but it’s his 2 nd game that pushed him into the top WR of the week this week. In that second game against the Gladiators, Shane had 7 catches for 171 yards and 3 TDs. Shane was the top receiver in the league last season and looks to stay up top the leaderboards again this season. The Warewolves will take on the Savages in Week 2.

WR Runner Up

Billy Belford – Woodchucks

If Shane Capone hadn’t played 2 games in Week 1, Billy most likely would have been the number 1 receiver this week. But Shane played a second game and absolutely dominated in that game. Billy had a was dominate himself in a losing effort to the Shockers in the rematch of the championship game. Belford had 8 catches for 172 yards and 3 TDs on the day. The defending champion Woodchucks will look to rebound next week but will have a very tough matchup against the Rabid Squirrels.


Def

Clam Slammers

The Clam Slammers dominated Strangers with Candy to a score of 47-18. Strangers with Candy couldn’t get anything going on offense as the Clam Slammers picked off Strangers’ QB Mike Torrel would throw 5 interceptions, 3 of which would be returned for a TD. Kenny Colicchio and Frank Ritacco each had 2 interceptions and a TD, while Sean Cahalane would chip in the 5 th pick of the day for a TD. The Clam Slammers will look to keep up the winning ways next week against the Assassins in the 1 o’clock game.

Def Runner Up

Casey Sirotniak – Strangers with Candy

Strangers with Candy played 2 games on Saturday and their 2nd game against the Assassins went much better than the first. Strangers with Candy would go on to win their 2nd game 14-12 in the lowest scoring game of the week. Casey Sirotniak had a big game on defense and would have 3 sacks. Casey was 2nd in the league in sacks in the summer season when he played for French Toast Mafia, and looks like he will most likely be up top of the leaderboards for most of this fall season as well. Strangers with Candy head into Week 2 with a 1-1 record and will take on the Kekembas.
